(CNN)Two murderers meticulously planned their New York state prison break, possibly sneaking out of their cells under the cover of darkness to rehearse their escape in tunnels, authorities said.
Richard Matt and David Sweat planned to drive seven hours in the night to a predetermined location, together with the woman who allegedly helped them, said Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie.
But Joyce Mitchell, who allegedly provided them with the tools to cut through prison walls, got cold feet and decided not to pick them up, he said.
Mitchell told investigators she planned to run off with the men after picking them up last week near a manhole where they'd emerge from a network of tunnels, Wylie said.
"They were going to meet down by the power plant, drive -- I'm not going to say into the sunset, because it was after midnight and it was dark out -- but they were going to drive, potentially to an area that was about seven hours away," Wylie said.
But she backed out.
Mitchell told authorities that Matt and Sweat picked the destination.
She did not say where the trio planned to head to after the two prisoners broke out of Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, officials said.
"That was the information that she was told by Matt and Sweat -- that it was about seven hours away," Wylie said.
After her change of heart, she began cooperating with police.
"She did indicate one of the reasons why she didn't show up was because she did love her husband and she didn't want to do this to him," Wylie said.
She is now sitting in jail, accused of aiding in the brazen prison escape. The two convicted killers she allegedly helped are free, but on the run.
She pleaded not guilty Friday night to a felony charge of promoting prison contraband and a misdemeanor charge of criminal facilitation. Her next court appearance is Monday.
If convicted, Mitchell faces up to eight years behind bars.
Interviews with prison inmates indicated that Matt and Sweat were seen with cell phones before they escaped, according to Wylie.
"But we have no proof of these cell phones," he said.
Wylie said authorities have been in contact with relatives and friends of Matt and Sweat who live elsewhere in the United States, but all of them said they hadn't heard from the convicts since they broke out of their maximum-security cells.
Matt and Sweat were discovered missing on June 6 during a 5:30 a.m. bed check at Clinton Correctional Facility.
While making their escape, they slipped through holes and cut into a steel plate and a steam pipe, then got out through the manhole and onto the street.
Mitchell supplied them with hacksaw blades, chisels, a punch and a screwdriver bit, according to court records.
In the weeks leading up to the escape, Wylie said, they may have been sneaking into the wall in the middle of the night to plan their escape route.
And, he said, the manipulation of Mitchell may go as far back as 2013, when the trio met.
Mitchell has told investigators that Matt made her feel "special," a source familiar with the investigation said.
Her husband and prison co-worker, Lyle Mitchell, is also under investigation, but has not been arrested or charged, authorities said. He worked in the maintenance department at the tailoring block where his wife was employed, Wylie said.
State Department of Corrections officials had received a complaint about the relationship between Joyce Mitchell and one of the two escapees. The department didn't find enough evidence to support the complaint, but that does not mean there was no relationship, Wylie said.
More than 800 state, local and federal law enforcement officers are searching for the escapees, New York State Police said. They have been following more than 700 leads developed in the weeklong manhunt.
Sweat was serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for the murder of a Broome County sheriff's deputy in 2002. Matt was sentenced to 25 years to life for the kidnapping and murder of a man in 1997.
The manhunt for the convicts has expanded in Plattsburgh, in upstate New York, where authorities have shut a portion of state Route 374.
Tracking dogs picked up their scent last week at a gas station in the town, where authorities believe they were rummaging through trash at a sandwich shop.
Wylie said earlier sightings have not led to any new clues.

Here is the extended lead item from my "Albany Insider" column from Monday's editions:
Gov. Cuomo and his administration might have some explaining to do when
and if the two escaped murderers from an upstate maximum security
prison are finally captured.
Assembly Corrections Committee Chairman Daniel O’Donnell (D-Manhattan)
didn’t rule out a potential hearing into the factors that might have
played into the successful June 6 escape from Clinton Correctional
Facility in Dannemora.
Cuomo has been front-and-center publicly since the two dangerous inmates dug their way to freedom.
But critics have already begun questioning whether prison staffing and
overtime issues played a role in the first escape from a New York
maximum security prison since 2003.
The Plattsburgh Press Republican reported that two guard towers at
Clinton Correctional were left unmanned because the Cuomo administration
was pressing for cuts in overtime.
That paper and the Albany Times Union also reported that a request to
lock down and search every cell at the prison after a melee days before
the escape was turned down because of overtime concerns.
“There’s enough dots connected to raise eyebrows and people are
beginning to question if this is a problem of the governor’s creation,”
said one insider. “The prison break could end up being an even bigger
headache for him once the prisoners are safely captured. It ties into
what he’s doing with the agencies and their budgets.”
Cuomo aides dismissed the criticism, saying that the number of
uniformed officers at Clinton Correctional is actually up this year from
five years ago despite fewer inmates. They also said overtime at the
facility in the first two pay periods of the fiscal year that began in
March was up as well.
"The Governor has said from the beginning that there will be a thorough
investigation into what happened here, but let's be clear -- there are
more guards overseeing less inmates at Clinton Correctional than there
have been in years,” Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi said. “Don't be
fooled by those who are distorting the facts to advance a political
O’Donnell, who in December warned the governor in a letter about
dangerous situations inside the Dannemora prison, wasn’t ready to commit
to a hearing on the escape until the inmates are caught and more
information becomes available.
“All we really have is speculation,” he said. “Until we get beyond the
speculation stage, it’s difficult for me to say what we’re going to do.”
Any hearing on the issue would need the approval of the chamber
leadership, he said. O'Donnell also questioned how cooperative the Cuomo
administration will be, especially if the inmates are still on the
“In the summer we’ll go back and see how things are,” he said. “Nothing’s been set yet.”
In the other chamber, a Senate GOP spokesman could not say whether a hearing into the escapes is being considered.

She also reportedly told investigators Matt made her feel "special," but stopped short of telling authorities that she was in love with the smooth-talking con.

The prison worker charged with helping two killers escape from an upstate prison is suspected of engaging in a sexual affair with one of the men before the breakout, sources told The Post on Monday.
Authorities believe that married tailor-shop supervisor Joyce Mitchell, 51, romped with inmate David Sweat behind the bars of the maximum-security Clinton Correctional Facility.
“She was in love with him,” a law enforcement source close to the investigation said.
Also Monday, Clinton County DA Andrew Wylie revealed that the hunt for Sweat and fellow jailbird Richard Matt — now in its 10th day — was costing “in the vicinity of $1 million a day.”
Wylie said other suspects were being eyed as accomplices in their elaborate escape: “Based on our investigation, there are additional people that may be arrested.”
Sweat and Matt went missing from the Dannemora lockup June 6 and have been on the lam since.
Mitchell, 51, was arrested Friday on contraband charges and appeared Monday morning in Plattsburgh City Court, where she was stone-faced and wore a black-and-white striped jumpsuit topped with a blue bulletproof vest.
Her lawyer, Keith Bruno, was replaced over an unspecified conflict of interest that he said was tied to a discussion they had over the weekend.
The case was adjourned pending possible grand jury charges and Mitchell, whose bond is set at $200,000, was hauled back to jail.
